Butterflies offer a new and unique way to raise funds for organizations like church groups, schools, scouts and charities.
Youth groups have raised money for their projects by offering church members the opportunity to buy a butterfly in memory of or in honor of a loved one. These butterflies are then released one morning following the church service. This is a great addition to an Easter Sunday service. It can also be used as an educational experience by ordering caterpillars instead of adult butterflies and allowing students to raise them for the release.
Charity organizations can use butterflies to raise money by selling butterflies for a mass release. An example of this would be to sell a butterfly for release in honor of or in memory of someone affected by cancer. Then the butterflies could be released massively prior to a walk-a-thon or other fundraising event.
